Book Fair is Coming!

It’s parent teacher time, and that means it’s time for Scholastic Book Fair! Our Scholastic Book Fair brings the books kids want to read right into our school. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child’s reading habits. We will be right inside the front doors and open for business during the conferences.

Trimester 2 here we come!

Believe it or not, Monday, November 18 marks the beginning of Trimester 2. That means report cards will be available to view very soon. More information about report cards will be shared soon.

Rollerskating Begins in PE Classes

Students in grades 2nd – 5th grade will begin rollerskating in PE classes on Monday, November 4. This fun activity is a favorite with our students.  They will learn the basic rollerskating skills including forward & backward skating, cornering and stopping.  A variety of other skating games and activities will also be offered. Every participating student must wear wrist guards, a helmet and socks.  Students may bring in their own protective gear (be sure they are clearly marked with their name), but helmets & wrist guards will also be provided for those who do not  bring them from home.
